Sunday - Stuart Low... and the latest repair job...
My next choice for the Every Day in May project is Bristol-based artist Stuart Low. His work is varied and diverse, using a wide range of techniques. But the window that I particularly responded to was this one. I love the contrast between the naive, child-like style of the birds and the technical precision of the background squares.
Later tonight I am going to make a start on the repair of these windows. Dating from approximately 1860, they will be going into a private home once refurbished. There are a few nasty cracks, and the border is in a fairly bad state, but overall the lead is in good condition and they are fairly sturdy.
